Hello friends, loved ones, and general well-meaners,
On the night of February 27th, my car was broken into across the street from my house, and thieves made away with my entire gigging rig. This is the gear I use to make my living, the tools of my trade, but also the product of years of careful honing of my palette and sonic signature. It included gear that I had acquired just a few weeks prior to gear that I've been using since 1999.
My hope is that, with your help, I can build a new rig from the ground up.
Already in the last day I've received generous support from friends in lended gear and some who have even already started to help me rebuild. I am incredibly grateful for and personally touched by the help I've already received. However, fully rebuilding will take a much more concerted effort, and deeper resources. And with gigs continuing at a constant clip, and upcoming recording, there's no time too soon to begin this process!
If you have it in your heart and within your means to help me rebuild, I will be enduringly indebted to you. I only hope for the opportunity to keep paying forward what I've received from the world.
